The Anchor Inn is a traditional country inn and restaurant nestled in the Stour Valley, in the picturesque village of Nayland. Perched on the banks of the River Stour, The Anchor enjoys stunning views across the river to beautiful countryside.
On the menu you’ll find traditional British cuisine with a twist, cooked fresh to order. Ingredients are sourced locally where possible and our menus are changed seasonally to respect what is at its freshest and best.
Behind the bar is an impressive selection of quality local and regional cask ales, international beers, wines from around the globe and a range of soft drinks plus freshly brewed tea and coffee.
Whether you’re joining us for an evening drink with friends, meeting for lunch or joining us for an intimate evening meal, The Anchor is a place to relax and enjoy great food and drink by the Stour.
The Anchor always has a great selection of top quality ales available from local and national brewers; with our Cask Marque award of excellence it is guaranteed to be a top pint.
We’ll be celebrating our love of real ale at The Anchor’s Beer Festival on August 14th – 16th. Join us for a relaxed, family festival on the riverbank.
From Friday 14th to Sunday 16th August, try a broad range of cask ales and ciders from new beers to local and old favourites, plus live music and BBQ throughout the weekend.
